For two days after the Fourth of July..........

What is the ONE THING you'd pick first that you'd like to see done in America which you think could restore her to what you believe America really is?

Allow God back in all branches of the government and schools.

Pris said...

Honest reporting by the media. The truth shall set us free.

Dave Miller said...

Great question Z... I'm thinking on that...

Leticia, you cannot limit God... by definition, He, being omniscient is there, wherever that there may be...

Chuck said...

Instill pride in the country.

Impertinent said...

Ban all lobbyists and corporate influence in government.

Term limits too.

Close the borders.

Deport all foreign invaders who overstayed visas or entered illegally.

Ban all entitlements to illegals.

Z said...

Leticia, when I saw your comment, I thought "someone will actually ask 'which God'?" ....thinking what a retch of a country we've become because somebody'd ask that. And, in my Moderation page, I was not disappointed, sadly. WOW.
am not publishing it, of course...but, this is only one of the ways your excellent advice could not be heeded anymore. And we will suffer for it.
I suppose some think Allah would be the god.

Pris, I think that's HUGE.......a media which apparently thinks we're E Germany is what we've got now, and an administration 100% behind it.

Dave, of course God is being limited. As if Leticia meant in our hearts and minds? My gosh, what a response.

Chuck; what do you think that would take?

Imp: From your lips to God's ears..unless the ACLU bans that, of course.

Chuck said...

Z, I think a lot of it starts in schools. Kids are indoctrinated in public schools to hate the country.

It's subtle but it's there.

The US:

-pollutes

-wages war on helpless countries

-exploits Native Americans and other people around the world

-warms the planet

-allows poor people to starve

-won't let gays marry

on and on.

Part of the problem is we are in a vicious cycle because we let the left reproduce. The by-product is what we see hanging around here at times ;-)

Z said...

Chuck "see hanging around here at times ;-)"
Not at my blog, not since I went on MODERATION :-)

And yes, I agree with all you said.

You know blogger SUSANNAH who has "GET THE BIG IDEA" blog? She overheard two kids around 7 years old, I think, at her child's school on MLK Jr Day saying what a bad country America is because they had slaves.
THis kind of information is excellent in high school, to learn about, dissect, study context, and be glad we moved on from slavery!...not when children haven't even learned all the great things about this country yet, don't you agree? That was upsetting to hear; and we know that's not unusual.

I don't know how we combat the leftwing hatred, I really don't.
I hear SO MANY young people who have no hope, no dreams....all they think about America is the worst of it, and the media complies and their teachers indoctrinate ...more and more and more. IT's so sad.......

I often wonder if a mandatory stint in the military would help that situation.

Mebbe some time in a third world nation where NO ONE has any rights. Spend some time with people that only have dirt for a floor!!

Hear the sound a bullet makes as it passes over your head when it's breaking the sound barrier! And then realize it was aimed at YOU.

It seems that so many have become complacent with what they have.

He, being omniscient is there, wherever that there may be...

But it seems, Dave, that He won't go where he's not wanted...Just take a walk in the many dead churches in our country alone!

Impertinent said...

"Part of the problem is we are in a vicious cycle because we let the left reproduce."...

Chuck..I thought it was the left who were so committed to abortion...so how could the bustruds reproduce? And isn't it blacks who have the highest rate of abortions? Even though they still tolerate 70%+ illegitimacy?

One should check out Anne Coulters article today. It goes right to the heart of this matter.

Silverfiddle said...

Abolish every law passed since the ratification of the US Constitution.

Joe said...

Silverfiddle, that's the best idea I've ever heard!

Z said...

Imp, Coulter nails it so well.
But, of course, in America today, there can BE no "stigma" for anything; that would be like saying God exists or there really IS right from wrong. :-)
Very interesting stats on adoption, for sure. I wish little Cayley was living in a two parent family; I'd wager a bet she'd be alive today.
She might not have a future like we all got to have, living under people like Obama, but at least she'd be alive.

Silverfiddle...well are't you the strict constructionist! Do you have a (least) favorite amendment?

Scotty, it's an interesting line about God being a gentleman and not going where he's wanted but, of course, He goes where HE wants to go. There are a lot of 'dead' churches today, for sure; people have taken over the divine, seemingly. Nothing Biblical in what they preach, sadly.....it's all man made, this weird interpretation of what the Book says.

"I often wonder if a mandatory stint in the military would help that situation."

Now your talking. You want to see a return to the foundations that made America great and feared? I sure as hell do.

You want to see a resurrection of God, Country, Family and Duty return to America.

Put the military in charge of this country for a few years. Let the asinine, cowards, political traitors who long for the country's demise on notice.

They've had the last 50 years to "un lead" us...to force us to travel down the road of "political" nonsensical solutions while expecting the military to carry out their silly, unproductive, counter intuitive, nation building bullshit while sacrificing the lives of our best citizens. The citizen soldier.

Go ahead...poll all of America's soldiers. I guran-damn-tee you that they want America to be TOP DOG...not a freakin' sissy LAP DOG for foreign pukes and murderers who want us gone.

To say nothing of the murderous islamist scum who's politics...yes I said POLITICS cause you cannot separate them from it...want us defeated and a caliphate...and their damn flag over DC.

Tell ya what...their damn flag will never fly over the Pentagon...or a Marine division.

You want the America of 1773 to 1789? The America of 1939 to 1945 again?

Well guess who saved us from extinction then?

Silverfiddle said...

Thanks Joe!

Z: My bad. I should have explicitly included the Bill of Rights.

beamish said...

Repeal the 17th Amendment to the US Constitution.

Z said...

Hey, Beamish, have you seen this?17th amendment

Z said...

By the way, I'm quite sure I've never heard that discussed...interesting, Beamish, I just Googled and learned a lot.
Of course, I just forgot it, but...:-)
Apparently, there are people working toward the repeal but I sure haven't ever heard of it. Had you heard of efforts to do that?

Lisa said...

Repeal everything after 2008

Z said...

Lisa, not a bad start :-)
Let's do it in November 2012!

Always On Watch said...

Beamish is correct: abolishing the 17th Amendment would do a great deal to re-establish the principles of federalism.

What is the ONE THING you'd pick first that you'd like to see done in America which you think could restore her to what you believe America really is?

Forbid any news to be broadcast on television. In my view, the TV news has corrupted the thinking process of the electorate. And don't get me started on political commercials around election time!

There is no way to do what I think needs to be done.

Always On Watch said...

And one more:

Lawyers would be automatically disqualified from holding political office. Hehehe.

Lisa said...

yes let's Z! Thanks for the post.

Bob said...

We need a revival, and home made whiskey. If the religion doesn't work, we can start on the whiskey, get drunk,and let nature take its course.

Sorry. It is really hard to get serious while watching the Whitehouse ignore what could be one of the most important times in the history of the USA.

MK said...

Expel liberals and leftism and the rest will fall into place.

Z said...

Bob, how's about martinis? :-)
two olives is OLIVE SOUP

three olives is OLIVE STEW !! HEH!!

(you can quote me :-)

MK: OH, pLEASE, GOD!!

sue said...

Z - A little more civility between the two major political factions might help.

Scotty said...

Having them get along is the LAST thing I want to see!!!

sue said...

scotty - ???

Z said...

Well, Scotty, I know you mean that would have meant the Right had capitulated, but it would be good if they could agree on something...and put the country before their careers.

I wish the media would better portray what Paul Ryan's plan was; I believe even Clinton rather liked some of it, didn't he?

While I COMPLETELY disagree with Clinton's absurd accusations of voter fraud by the Right and his asinine inferences about Jim Crow's return (which about did me in because I was JUST starting to think he'd started putting country before his party), I was impressed that he'd complimented Ryan and done a few things lately that showed him really actually understanding the Right's point of view. HE apparently had listened and knew nobody on the Right's shutting down Medicare, etc. etc etc. But, then he went to the silliness and I lost faith again.

BY the way, this whole voter fraud thing is going to step up against the Right, wait for it.
My opinion is we need to get back to basics: You vote ON ELECTION DAY. Period. It's not FRAUD to expect adults who are going to cast an important vote to know what DAY the election is and plan to find the time...we always did in the past! I also think it should be on a weekend like it is in Europe.

And I think Provisional Ballots should be banned. You either come prepared with your name in the records or you don't vote. so many changes need to be made.

Anyway, back to the topic; ya, we need agreement but we need to think AHEAD now; time to never let that debt ceiling rise or we will NEVER recover..ever never ever.

Scotty said...

Z said it, Sue, it seems it usually ends up with the right caving to the left.

You said you'd like to see them agree on something, Z, what would that be? Who should be making concessions?

Sue, I'm somewhat a history buff. You should read up on how politics was handled back in the day. It makes what we see today seem as if we're dealing with choir boys!!

It was a lot dirtier and deadlier in the olden days!
